Review of Two bedroom Villa with Private pool.Posted Apr 11, 2015
Pros: The staff was friendly and eager to help.
Cons: Cleanliness needs to be improved greatly. Staff needs to be trained better at cleaning all the furniture. The plumbing needs to be greatly improved.
Location: Snorkeling is available everywhere. Town is only about a 45 minute walk away. There are restaurants in town.
Our experience was fair especially with the hotel staff upgrading our party to the Villa with a private pool since it came with air-conditioning. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves since its located in a pristine are of Savusavu. The rooms were not as clean as expected of resorts though. I expected cleaner surroundings. Even the resort restaurant and pool area seating furniture was excessively dusty and looked as though had not been wiped down for a month ( if you think of insects and the mess they can leave behind ) The plumbing of our room was fine except the shower drain seemed clogged. The kitchen counter was littered with lizard feces... Overall if this was all fixed the overall rating would be much higher.

Definitely vintage, work with the FijiansPosted Sep 5, 2014 on Hotels
All units are stand-alone houses which was great for privacy. Two of our rooms smelled of cat urine and the door broke which trapped us in the room, to be fair this is probably the oldest building they have. Some of the staff charged us differently for the same meals, very weird.

Great resort to get back to basicsPosted Jan 6, 2014
Pros: Very very friendly staff
Cons: The presentation of facilities could be improved. I know the owners and newly appointed manager are addressing this.
Location: The resort is 20 minutes from town, and forms a semicircle of buildings facing the sea, centered around a pool and dining area.
The resort is a short walk from the town of Savusavu, and is formed of huts facing the sea and nestled in the hills. The center of the resort is the dining building and pool area. The staff were very eager to help with any request or difficulty.

Excellent locationPosted Jan 3, 2014
Daku is s rare pleasure. Walking distance to everything you would care about yet removed enough that you aren't caught up in the rush. Its a 15 minute stroll to the town. The resort itself is pleasant enough. Rooms are spacious and clean. If you are expecting a 5 star resort look elsewhere. If however you want something closer to a home stay with room service look no further. The meals are excellent and the staff a friendly. The cocktails are tasty, and I recommend ordering a coconut (ask for it to be opened later to get the tasty flesh). Be sure to try snorkelling just off the beach near the dock but beware the jellyfish which have a painful sting.

nettes resortPosted Dec 9, 2013 on Hotels
Die Besitzer waren sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Nachts wurden wir und auch andere Nachbarn leider bestohlen. Von der Terasse wurde Kleidung gestohlen. Und bei einem Pärchen wurde während des dinners Wertgegenstände aus dem Bungalow gestohlen. Die guten Tauchausflüge waren leider schon ausgebucht. Das Zimmer wurde tgl. gereinigt. Das Essen war gut, aber zu wenig für einen kräftigen Mann.

Paradise with a familiar feelingPosted Aug 24, 2013 on Hotels
Awesome place. Right next to the ocean, walking distance from downtown (although not a short one - nice and easy with great views). Everyone was very gracious, everyone joining for meals, but the best part bar none was the massage by Kalo, OMG!!!! The setting, overlooking the ocean, the noise of the waves and his magic hands...priceless, really! I have massages regularly, and these were the best massages ever.

Great place to go and relaxPosted Aug 7, 2013 on Hotels
I decided to stay somewhere a little different on my business trip to Vanua Levu, and found this resort. When I arrived everyone was so welcoming and knew my name from the minute I stepped in. The room was tidy and overlooking the beach. I loved the outdoor shower, I little liberating actually!! The resort was very quiet even though the place was full, most people went out during the day to events or diving, but my purpose was just to relax.....which I certainly did, in great fashion. JJ and Delia were fantastic hosts never forgetting my name, making me feel welcome...even they had only arrived back that same day. Thanks again for a great time, and I hope to return someday.

Great place for a holiday and to get married.Posted Jun 24, 2012
Pros: The grounds are amazing, the team make you feel like family.
Location: By the beach about a 10 minute stroll to Savu Savu town
You will feel totally at home there. Jay Jay and the team there are like family. My lovely girl, our son and I went to Daku for a holiday and whilst there we decided to get married and the team from Daku made it the most special experience possible.

We're coming back for surePosted Jan 15, 2012
Pros: The quality and super friendly service
Location: A quick 2-5 mins taxi ride into town, or a nice 2km walk which we did twice because of the view, and also the house with chickens at the front :)
Daku was our most memorable stay and we are sure to return, multiple times! Thank you JJ and all at Daku for a wonderful stay! My boyfriend and I rocked up after a long flight/drive from Nadi and Labasa airports but a refreshing coconut drink and a smiling staff upon our arrival was most satisfying. The place is lovely with lots of trees and plants and our ocean-view bure was perfect for our 6 night stay. It was clean, and every day we would get fresh flowers arranged differently everyday on our bed. Right outside our bure was a volleyball court, which my boyfriend and I played frisbee during the afternoon when we had nothing planned. The view is amazing, definitely felt like I was on holiday from the bustling city of Melbourne back home. The highlight of our stay was the staff and visitors we met. JJ (the owner) was wonderful and helped us get our diving course sorted and even helped us arrange a later flight for us so that we don't have to wake up at 4am in the morning! There was also one night where we decided to have dinner at Daku, and to our surprise the dinners at Daku is seated together with other visitors so that you can mingle. This was a great experience because we got to know a little more about each other and we were told interesting diving tales (as my boyfriend and I have never tried diving before). Even though I didn't have much (or nothing!) to share about diving but I couldn't help but feel like we were all a little family :) Highly recommended!
